About 1 in 7 couples experience fertility issues, with each individual having their own unique situation. It’s important to bear in mind that there is no single approach that will work for everyone.
So if you are planning on making babies here are some tips that could help.
Don’t rely too much on an app. Everyone is different so it’s important to understand your body and your fertility signs.
Have more sex. Try not to focus too much on ovulation. Did you know that sperm lasts 3-5 days, so having sex 3 times a week will ensure there is a plentiful supply in the fallopian tubes, this will optimise your chances in the fertile period.
After ovulation continue having sex in order to keep the sperm fresh and ensure it is performing well. Quite often couples don’t continue having sex in the second half of the cycle.
Take the pressure off having sex around the time of ovulation if there are performance issues. Erectile dysfunction is quite common and can be a big issue for men. A lot of it has to do with the removal of spontaneity, so it’s time to start getting creative. Even though the purpose is to conceive, try to remember, revive and renew the reasons that sex used to be fun before infertility came into the picture.
